Pelton Water Motor
Is so superior to all others as regards strenth, durability and economy of
water, in fact all that constitutes a HIGH CLASS WATER MOTOR,
as to admit of no comparison, adapted to every variety of service and
made of sizes varying Iroin tlie fraction of i up to 100 H. P. Recent
stieiitilic tests made at the Michigan University in connection with sev
rral other motors claimed to be the best on the market showed 45 per
n-iit higher erticiency in favor of favor of the Plil.TON, while the rela
tive cost per II. P. to buy was unlv one-third to one-half that of others-.
Water companies desiring to make tlie best of their water supply should
discriminate In tavor of the PELTON. Drlix eries made from New York
or San l-'rancisco, as may afford the best freight rates. Circulars free.
One of these motors can be seen any time operating 1 lib MlNbK presses.
